4-H & Youth


4-H'ers in Cecil County are leading a Revolution of Responsibility - a movement for positive change in every community in America including right here in Cecil County, MD!

4-H youth are a living breathing, culture-changing revolution for doing the right thing, breaking through obstacles and pushing our country forward by making a measurable difference right here in Cecil County. This takes uncommon commitment and that is exactly what our youth have!

Currently, our revolution consists of 23 community and project clubs reaching 435 youth, 150 youth in 4-H camping programs and reaching over 4,800 youth in school and community outreach groups throughout Cecil County, MD. That is over 5,400 youth in our community committed to change! This change starts with the heart of 4-H: Community Service. In 2019, Cecil County 4-Hers who submitted reports for the President’s Volunteer Service Awards, logged over 5,300 hours of service in our community. Our 372 4-H Volunteers did their part in changing our community, providing a volunteer value of over $280,000 for their service to our community!

Join our Revolution! For more information on our Cecil County 4-H Youth Development Program  CLICK HERE.
